Hepatitis B (Hep B)

Hepatitis B (Hep B) Vaccination

The CDC recommends the hepatitis B vaccine for international travelers and healthcare workers, and for people with certain medical conditions, high-risk behaviors, or other risk factors. As with the Hepatitis A vaccine, this vaccine is now recommended for all children in the U.S., but it may not have been available when many adults were children themselves. (Resource ACP)

What is Hepatitis B (Hep B)?

Like hepatitis A, hepatitis B is a liver disease, but it is caused by a different virus. The hepatitis B virus is spread by contact with the blood, semen, vaginal secretions, or other body fluids of an infected person.

People infected with hepatitis B can spread the virus to others, even if they don’t appear sick. Some people who get hepatitis B develop a long-term (chronic) form of infection. This can be very serious and lead to liver damage, liver cancer, or sometimes even death.
